We battled with science and the periodic table, but when it comes to perfumery, hydrogen is definitely our favourite element. We know and love Johannesburg-based perfumer Leigh-Anne Drakes for her unconventional use of abstract, sometimes even obscure, notes in her perfumes (and quirky, humour-laden scent names). The latest addition from Apartment is no different. Hydrogen Is My Favourite Element is a unisex, airy mix of contrasts that is as nuanced as it is innovative; think notes of cathedral incense, Bic ink, woods, dust, musk, and moss.
